Yes . I found at least 81 banana trees, two beautiful and productive fig trees@Gaius I. Caesar

You will be very popular come banana bread time with your neighbors...

 

SG has to go home to his family for a couple of weeks before school starts to get some of his things and file official papers, etc. 

DD is sad. He leaves tomorrow.

So it isn't feasible for her to go with him?

She was going to but decided against it due to morning sickness, discomfort, and she has to get her own school stuff done. ( She has some scholarship business to attend to ). So his family wants us all to come out after the baby is born for a big celebration. SG is picking us up some appropriate attire for that trip.

This should be fun. 

Whatever it is I want tie-dye.

Yes @Gaius I. Caesar, @Bakir we've just moved into a new house and I've been very busy sorting, organizing, and repairing. This place is very nearly paradise! But it needs a ton of work. The house is not large but it's well planned so that all six of us can be home and it doesn't feel crowded. There is a small barn which has been converted to a cottage, and gardens and gardens and gardens, more than you would believe for an in town lot. But it's been at least a few years since anyone maintained the grounds. I found at least 81 banana trees, two beautiful and productive fig trees, and I think I saw grapes in an overgrown hedge. I'm still discovering new things every day. It's amazing what can be hidden on a half acre lot. 

But I'm checking in here a couple times a day. What's up, bro @Gaius I. Caesar?

Remember that time I said that I would check and see if I can play an musical instrument as a form of occupational therapy for the spasticity in my hands? 

Well, I asked Sistani last night. Currently waiting on an answer, should be interesting.

Wow congrats to your family. Send the parents our blessings, if that's feasible.

On another note... i got member of the week. I didnliterally nothing.

By the way @magma, my parents didnt give me a really strange name as you might guess from my profile name. Sila is a Turkish female name, it seems.

Alhamdulillah I am very happy for you sister! InshaAllah we can all remember to praise Allah(SWT) in sad times as well as in happy times! May you and your family live in peace in your new house :)

 

Hmm @Darth Vader  I was going thru the archives from waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay back and I found a thread that you made where you asked if you could wear hijab because all the ladies in the shopping mall was chasing you.... hehe how did it turn out brother? They still chasing you?

I am sure you can practice "war drumming". It is allowed.

War drumming doesn't require finger flexibility. I hope they say it is permitted, or @Gaius I. Caesar will have to take up knitting or something.

@Gaius I. Caesar & @notme Wouldnt piano be best for finger flexibility? or maybe a wind instrument like flute or clarinet.

No, something like a guitar or an oud is best for that.  It creates better wrist control, flexes and toughens the fingers  and strengthen my hands overall, which would be good for me. I can't hold things as good as I used to and recently I had a couple of accidents because of it.

Could you reference me on how I can ask sistani questions?

I remember before (years ago) I sent numerous questions to the sistani website, and even a bunch to the Sayyed Ammar Nakshawani website. I never get answered... So I sort of just stopped since.

I just went on Sistani.org and clicked on the Send Question box and typed in my question. I didn't do anything special, bro.

Perhaps the point I wanted to raise was about a revolting experience brought about as a result of turning women into pseudo men by giving them "equality with men" and making them dislike and lose their natural identity we have made them just like corrupt men if not worse.

Nothing to "hehe" about.

I had my entire lunch out of the garden yesterday. Have you tried container gardening for veges or fruits? Or do you have garden space?

That must be so satisfying =) we do have a garden put its patio, lawn and some bushes. There is a type of crab apple tree but the fuit is not edible and the flowers are in pots. We've grown a tomato plant in a pot before. I'd really like to grow big stuff though, like cabbages, parsnips, beetroot and the like.

I am neither a botanist nor a farmer but I wonder whether this whole hippie garden lawn movement is perhaps incredibly short sighted?

 

I know some guys who do urban farming. It looks and "feels" good but I am curious as to what actual farmers who know what they're doing, think about the viability of such projects.

If you get a good container gardening book or go to a website for your area ( key!), you would be surprised what you can grow!

Actually, even in towns before the 1950's ( when " supermarkets" started), it was common to have a small kitchen garden for food. Not rocket science. Everyone across the political spectrum had them. Folks  across the political spectrum today who believe in more food sovereignty and security  and who want to know what's been sprayed on their food, what has been used to fertilize and water  it, etc. have them now.  My friend a few miles away  is hardly a hippie ( she and I  joke we go to the polls together to cancel each other out), but she and I trade heirloom seeds , discuss our laying hen issues ,and give each other advice regarding garden layouts over tea. I'm sure the corporate soil-destroying mono -cropping agro-businesses don't appreciate our attempts at food independence and preserving the good clean dirt at our places...neither of us care.
